The US ‘body in the suitcase’ killers have received a cut in their Bali jail sentences.
Under annual remissions granted over Christmas, Heather Mack and her boyfriend Tommy Schaefer, who have been sentenced to ten years and 18 years in jail respectively, have been awarded a small cut in their sentences.
Mack and Schaefer murdered Miss Mack’s mother, Sheila von Wiese-Mack, from Chicago, in an upmarket Bali hotel in August 2014. They have had their sentences cut by one month.
The cut in jail time was met by criticism as other convicts in Bali such as British drug-smuggling grandmother Lindsay Sandiford, 59, who is on death row for attempting to smuggle 10.5lb of cocaine through Bali airport in May 2012, received no benefit.
‘It’s not a huge cut when you consider they’re doing 10 years and 18 years, but it makes you wonder why Lindsay Sandiford faces death with no remission and the Americans who actually kill someone are shown leniency,’ a jail visitor familiar with the Sandiford case said today.
The courts have heard that after a fierce argument between Schaefer and her mother, 62-year-old Chicago socialite Wiese-Mack in the five-star St Regis Hotel in Bali, the couple killed her in her hotel room and then stuffed her body into a suitcase which they loaded into the rear of a waiting taxi.
